    Adding CPU Temp Sensor?

    How do I add the temp sensor so I can obtain my cpu temps through my bios. As of now the bios provides me with the rpm's of my cpu fan, and the temperature of my mobo, but the cpu temp is N/A?

    Is there a simple procedure to enable this feature?

    Is the platform of the CPU a Slot?? I had a Slot 1 which did the same thing, and in order to get a temp. reading, you need to add a tempature probe, which is compatiable with your motherboard. There should be a small connecter somewhere near the CPU on the mobo which looks similiar to another fan plug. Simply plug in the probe there, and take the other end and tape it near the very bottom of the heatsink for the most accurate reading. You can buy these from Radio Shack or a computer store. Hope this helps.
